Monitoring and Review
104. Issues relating to inclusion and equalities are discussed at fortnightly meetings of the Vaccine Inclusive Steering Group and regularly reported to the Vaccination Programme Board.
105. This EQIA must be responsive to the many factors which can impact on vaccination policy and hence should be viewed as a living document. It is supported by work which has been taken forward by PHS to publish its refreshed HIIA: An inclusive approach to flu and COVID-19 vaccination service delivery in Scotland, and underpinned by health boards' own EQIAs. Our intention is that this EQIA should be reviewed every six months, or in the event of other significant changes in circumstances.
